Texto inicial:

It’s not surprising there’s a lot of misinformation about mediums out there. It’s a controversial topic that is often in conflict with various worldviews, religious beliefs, neuroscience, and, seemingly, common sense. We weren’t taught about mediumship in grade school even though it has been practiced in cultures all over the world for eons. As far as I know, there are no Small Persons-type toys that are mediums like there are for cowboys, farmers, police officers, firefighters, carpenters, plumbers, pirates, and even angry gentlemen with hats. The popular media doesn’t help matters with its regular misrepresentations and sensationalism. So, whenever I encounter errors in thinking about mediums, I try to do what I can to correct them.

For example, when I spend time with my uncle Harold* (say, at a holiday dinner table) his first question is always, “Now, what is it that you do again? You talk to dead people?” This is often accompanied by eyerolling and a smirk. Then I explain that I am Director of Research at the Windbridge Research Center where I design and perform controlled research studies with psychic mediums, people who experience regular communication with the deceased. I remind him that I am not a medium, but I work with a team of scientifically tested mediums and study their accuracy, experiences, and unique characteristics. Harold then (say, after a couple of egg nogs) launches into a barrage of erroneous statements that I try to calmly correct. Below is an example of one of our conversations. And if Uncle Harold ever says, “Prove it!” or “Wait, what?” I point him to the resources listed as ‘To learn more.’

You may have heard or will hear similar statements from people in your own life. Feel free to use my responses below as your own. (It is not recommended, however, that these responses be used to get in arguments with angry people with entrenched worldviews and overactive amygdalas from the Internet nor with individuals on whom you depend for a ride home.)

*I don’t have an Uncle Harold. He is fictional and was created for the purpose of this document. The photo is clipart. Harold is an amalgam of people and opinions I’ve encountered. Please play along.
